Shouldn't it be fortnightly rather than weekly, though, since it's not PD for everyone? Just checkin'. :)
Curious why it’s PD status would make it more suitable for fortnightly than weekly. Just askin’ :hmm:

Traditionally, we've kept weekly poetry as poems that everyone can record. I don't know how it started; maybe that way newbies can always jump into the weekly poem without worrying about local copyright? *shrug*

Ahhh - I wasn’t aware of that. I thought the fortnightly poems were just longer more involved poems that take longer to complete. My first section as a newb was one of David’s weekly poems.
